Student and Professor with Robotic Arm

An education that transforms lives and unlocks careers


Our programs are respected centers of excellence and leadership—but our deepest pride (and greatest value) is the highly personal nature of the Widener education. By understanding your individual learning style and aspirations, your professors prepare you to meet your specific goals.

Powerhouse Programs; Personalized Education

The Widener education is fueled by great teaching from respected scholars who are personally invested in each student’s success. Our classes are small. Our people are connected. Which means instruction and advising is catered to your individual strengths, needs, and goals.

Degree paths are nimble, flexible, and responsive to constant changes in the industries our students are preparing to enter. Your education will provide the specific knowledge, skills, insights, and experiences you need to thrive in your career. But you’ll enter the job market with broader perspectives gained through wider exploration.

Whatever you study and wherever you’re headed, you’ll gain the confidence and flexibility to adapt and excel as the world shifts.
